Radere – a.k.a. the Colorado-based producer and sound artist Carl Ritger – returns to basic_sounds for his fourth outing, Koschei . Following on from last year’s A Pouring Out Of Sleep , Koschei presents the most fully realized iteration of the Radere aesthetic yet, blending his unique approach to synthesis and processing with dense clouds of guitar drone and textural ambience. In a sense, Koschei represents a walking tour through Radere’s experiments during a year that found him...

Multi-talented Spanish producer and videographer José Barrera (aka Bite) delivers Room, his second outstanding EP for basic_sounds. Known for his dark immersive ambient drones Bite delivers a passionate balance between eerie and warmth. The first titled track, “Room 01” is a dark, contemplative soundscape with digital organic quirks combined with buzzing, alluding to bleak feelings regarding the state of the world. This concept is reinforced in Barrera’s video. “Room 02” is another...

Radere is the nom du plume of Carl Ritger, a Philadelphia-based sound artist who constructs dense drones and flickering ambiences from found sounds and heavily treated guitar loops. Lost At Sea, I’m Never Coming Back marks his first recorded work since A Season In Decline - his well-received sophomore effort for Full Spectrum Records - was released at the end of last year. Inspired by a pair of field recordings captured during a trip to the shore, Lost At Sea... opens quietly, with softly...

Recently relocating to Boulder, CO from Philadelphia, Radere (aka Carl Ritger) usually builds dense textural ambient drone soundscapes from heavily filtered guitar loops, utilizing an ever-evolving array of pedals. However, his latest basic_sounds release, The Earth, Laid Bare, showcases a softer and gentler approach for Radere, eschewing the squalls of distortion and white noise that have defined his recent style. Recorded during a flurry of travel over the past year, Radere found time on...
